Hello. After more than three months away from the mic, and treatment for hairy cell leukemia, it's time to get back to work. That begins with today's SportsBeat KC podcast. I'm Blair Kerkhoff, and there's plenty to discuss with Star columnists Vahe Gregorian and Sam McDowell. Major college conference basketball tournaments begin this week, including the Big 12 tourneys in Kansas City. Kansas enters the event as the top seed and could meet Kansas State in its first game. Is this the last stand for Wildcats coach Bruce Weber? The same can be asked of Missouri coach Cuonzo Martin, who leads the TIgers into the SEC tournament. The NFL's free agency period approaches, too, and we also discuss potential Chiefs moves this offseason. On a personal note, a heartfelt thanks for your thoughts and prayers that continue to keep my spirits soaring throughout my recovery. It feels great to be back.

In the 182nd ever episode we weigh the pros and cons of "mutually parting ways" with Cuonzo Martin. We think there's a strong case for moving on but we try to see the factors that could lead to him staying. We also discuss the QB situation over on the football team and try to figure out if next year's starter is even on the roster yet. Thanks for listening!
Spring football starts soon for Mizzou with Eli Drinkwitz on the hunt for a QB. Ben Frederickson of the Post Dispatch visits to discuss whether or not, that player is already on the team. Coach Drinkwitz has said if there's a quarterback somewhere that he thinks is a fit, that he would go get him. Could that be Jayden Daniels? We also chat about the Cuonzo Martin debate and how to improve the Missouri basketball program. Yuri Collins and SLU are rolling through February and have looked really good lately. We talk about them in the A10 and potentially playing in March. St. Louis Blues playing great hockey and could have a goalie battle down the stretch. Will it be Binner or Husso? And will the team get some defense help in front of them? Eventually the Cardinals will play this year and when they do, where does Alex Reyes fit? Ben talks about keeping him out of the closer role. We recap the challenges Marmol faces in taking over this year with offense and more. Listen here:

Neil W. Blackmon (Saturday Down South) and Eric Fawcett (Gator Country) break down Florida's 66-65 victory over Missouri this past Wednesday. How Tyree Appleby and Niels Lane sparked the Florida win, and just what in the world was Cuonzo Martin thinking about defensively down the stretch?

Why Missouri's switching defense could present problems for the Gators, and why the turnover battle will decide the game.
You're about to hear a lot about a new downtown ballpark for the Royals that I will likely support if the team pours enough of its own money into it. But the Downtown Council unveiled a 10 year plan this week that attaches 179 other projects to all this. The ballpark should stand alone, the other liberal stuff should be separate. In Kansas, there's a proposed $4 billion tech plant so mysterious, lawmakers don't know the company that wants to build it or even where it will be. This is a crazy story, even crazier, Kansas needs to make it happen. The fiancee of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is just getting skewered this week for spraying champagne out of her suite onto Chiefs fans. Nobody likes her, the videos or the antics of the brother. So she's decided to play victim of bullying now and it's got my blood boiling. And what in the world was Cuonzo Martin thinking Tuesday night down 55-54 to the number one team in the country with :35 seconds left. Mizzou had a chance for a great moment, but the coach made it impossible.
Nick Bolton was a key cog in one of the great games in NFL history. Cuonzo Martin has done some good things this year, but not playing Trevon Brazille more was suspect, at best.

Coach Cornell Mann's Story. In this episode, you'll hear from Cornell Mann. Coach Mann is currently an assistant coach for Cuonzo Martin at the University of Missouri. Coach Mann is entering year five with Coach Martin. “Corn” as the entire coaching community knows him has a wealth of experience: assistant coaching stops at Central Michigan, Western Michigan, Oakland, Dayton, and Iowa State. And Coach Mann is synonymous with helping the head coaches that he assists: WIN! In over seventeen years in the profession, Coach Mann has been to postseason play twelve times. Including ten times to the NCAA tournament. Coach Mann was recently selected to participate in the 2021 TopConnect Symposium. This future head coach is indeed focused on helping Coach Martin compete for an SEC title this season. However, what you learn is that Coach Corn's journey to the SEC is such an amazing journey. Two young youth coaches in the Detroit Metropolitan area, Tex and Dino, mentored a young Cornell Mann and his cousin, DJ Stephens, who is currently the Associate Head Coach for Tom Izzo at Michigan State. Tex and Dino mentored Corn and DJ and really introduced these two amazing men into the thought of one day being coaches. As a matter of fact, you will soon learn that Coach Corn knew by the 5th grade that he wanted to help people. The word “CARE” will resonate throughout the entire podcast. Coach Corn engages with the players that he coaches and shares some amazing experiences from his past. In addition, Coach Mann shares some amazing tips to young coaches: from recruiting and creating balance to teaching time management and being calm--this is a great 30-minute coaching course for young coaches. I know one thing, Tex and Dino helped mold an unbelievable man and leader. Coach Cornell Mann is simply about giving back. There are so many terrific things about this conversation and I am so thankful that Coach Mann shared his incredible coaching story!
